Depends on what you call reification of course ...
Suppose we have an object R which is a *representative* for a resource r.
That R object is actually an URI-of-r object that can talk via HTTP with r.
Actually a web browser is such a kind of R object ...
(but I also made R objects as representatives for remote Java objects)
Anything that happens with representative R, happens with resource r.
So r is kind of engine-available via R (and R is not a reification of r).
So the kind of *in-place (or in-circle)* RDF nodes I mentioned before
can be R objects (or RDF graphs containing such R objects).
